This article at least only makes sensible claims to the powers of reiki:

In some case studies, some patients undergoing chemotherapy had reported reduced intensity and frequency of nausea and vomiting after Reiki sessions. It may also help cancer patients to relax, improve sleep, manage pain, lessen discomfort, increase their general sense of well-being and improve their quality of life.

hmm, nothing amazing eh, basically a massage and meditation session.

of course we have the other side of the healing coin

When utilizing Reiki energy, one is merely tapping into the magnanimous love of the divine (God, life force, universe, Christ force, etc). Jesus used the exact same source of energy as is used by "Reiki." Jesus once said that all he can do can be done by us and even more. The key ingredient is trust. As a Reiki Master, I have learned to trust in the goodness of the divine.

REIKI ENERGY HEALING APPLICATIONS & LIMITATIONS
The beauty of this divine love is that it does not discriminate between believers and skeptics. It's power has been utilized to positively impact a multitude of people and situations from NBA basketball games (calming potentially volatile players) to conservative institutions such as Wall Street. The healing power of Reiki can be directed toward individuals, pets, plants, living/working spaces, businesses, situations and even future events. This loving energy now called "Reiki", is incapable of hurting other individuals for personal gain. Extremely specific requests can be very limiting. One needs to reflect on the general desired outcome behind the request. An example would be to ask for the "growth of one's business." It would be more productive to ask what you would want from it's growth. It may be better to ask for "financial freedom." This broader approach frees up the hands of the divine to send you your best outcome(s). Reiki always works toward the best outcomes. When you present me with your request, I will ask for the highest and best for you. To get a glimpse of a few of the practical applications of Reiki that I have seen, read my page called Reiki Practical Applications. It is good to remember that you are only limited by your imagination and purity of your intent.

and the wackos

Great excerpt here:

For Spiritual Healers, no stone is as essential to their craft as quartz. Embodying all the qualities they seek, it is the quintessential healing crystal. Part of this faith they place in Quartz comes from its scientific properties that make it useful in electronic devices. From this one truth, Crystal Healers make huge leaps in logic.

:lol:

google has many many many other examples....

On a related note, I saw Mary from Big Brother on the front cover of a women's magazine yesterday and the headline was "The truth about my alien lover".

How can it be massage if it's non-contact?

I think it's a very subtle effect compared to massage.
